I am a 21 year old fanatic bass fisherman but I have no idea how to work a crankbait or spinner bait? I mean I use them but I am not sure if I am using them right or not.Would someone please give me a couple of basic methods of using them. I am an avid jerk baits and trick worm fisher.


Thank you in advance

"Stop and Go" retrieve hasn't failed anyone in 100's of years. Also change the side to side direction of the retrieve with your rod tip every other crank or so. Cold ,or deep, or cold front water go slower , sometimes much slower than you would any other time. Clear water = small, no noise, natural baits. Stained, or dirty water = bigger, noisier, louder colored baits.

Pardner don't know beans.

Go to http://www.bassresource.com/html/crankbaits.html for crankbait tips and http://www.bassresource.com/html/spinnerbaits.html for spinnerbait tips. I hope this helps.

I LIVE & DIE BY BOTH BAITS. TO KEEP IT SIMPLE NOW I TO STARTED OUT NOT BELIVING IN CRANKBAITS. I BOUGHT SOME BOMBER MODEL A CRANKS AND STARTED THROWING THEM IN WOOD OR ANY COVER I COULD FIND, & BAM. START OUT WITH THE SHALLOWER DIVERS. SPINNERBAITS KEEP SIMPLE WITH 1/4 OR 3/8 OZ. MODELS IN NATURAL COLORS LIKE WHITE. THROW THEM IN WOOD, ETC. THEN LET THEM SLOWLY DROP TO KEEP IN STRIKE ZONE, OVER GRASS BEDS. WORK BOTH SLOWER TO START OUT, SOON YOU WILL BE THROWING THEM IN PLACES MOST ANGLERS ARE AFFRAID TO. BELIVE IN THEM - THEY DO WORK. I NEVER LEAVE HOME W/O BOTH BAITS.
